Family Dinner: Taste of the Philippines

Price: $170

Join us for a dinner where we do all the cooking! Each month we open the doors between our classrooms and seat 40 guests for a five-course family-style spread, featuring all the ingredients we’re excited about. Restaurants like Kasama in Chicago and Neng's Jr. in Asheville are getting attention for imagining what Filipino food can be, while remaining true to the sweet, salty, sour, and umami flavors that distinguish the cuisine. This spring we are teaming up with Jay Guerrero to celebrate the way immigrants have brought their cuisine all over the world, using local ingredients to make food that isn't traditional, but absolutely Filipino. Pricing includes tip, a wine pairing with each savory course, and tea or coffee with dessert.
